A bit like candy

Some quick knits are so fast, fun and fabulous that we can't stop with just one.  These terrific little hats are a perfect example. pom pom 01pom pom 02         Ashley Lillis' FREE pattern for a Knit Slouchy Pom Pom Hat is too good to stop with just one.  We've taken to knitting this pattern with two skeins of Madelinetosh's bulky  A.S.A.P on US 15 needles.  Reversing the colors gives you enough leftover yarn to make a second hat.  And this cold and snowy weather has all of us needing some extra warmth and a burst of bright color. pom pom 03These hats have given us the perfect excuse to play with Madelinetosh's bright neon colors.  This makes these hats very appealing to the youngsters we've been gifting them to (and has the added benefit of making the hats more difficult to loose track of).Best of all the entire project can be easily completed in a single afternoon's knitting.  So find a cozy spot, pour yourself a big steaming cup of tea and let the stitches fly as the snow continues to fall.We hope that you can pop into the shop to pick out some fun colors that you find mouthwatering and will treat yourself to a guilt free goody this week.
